State Dept. to Increase ‘Do Not Travel’ Advisory to 80% of World

The State Department said it will update its travel advisories this week to “strongly recommend” against traveling amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, discouraging visits to approximately 80% of the world’s countries.

The department said the revised guidelines are intended to curb travel amid “unprecedented risks” and are in line with updated health notices from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“As always, we are closely monitoring conditions around the globe, and will regularly update our destination-specific advice to U.S. travelers as conditions evolve,” the department said.

The warnings come despite the Unites States easily outpacing the rest of the world in both coronavirus cases and related deaths. As of Tuesday, the U.S. has approximately 31.8 million cases — more than twice as many as second-place India — and 568,000 deaths, 197,000 more than Brazil, according to a Johns Hopkins University tracker.
